This morning I woke up H U N G R Y and wanted a hearty breakfast. I looked through my cupboards and this is what I came up with — super yummy and, best yet, the recipe makes 6 filling servings at only 200 calories a whack!
Spinach Pumpkin Sausage Frittata
10 ounce bag of organic chopped frozen spinach (I am all about convenience, hence the frozen)
1 can (15 oz.) organic pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling!!!)
8 egg whites
4 whole eggs
1/2 cup 50 percent reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
1 package Fit & Trim Wildfire Buffalo Chicken Sausage
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Thaw spinach in microwave.
In a medium bowl, beat egg whites, whole eggs and pumpkin together. Slice chicken sausage into rounds.
When spinach is thawed, add it and the sausage to an oven-proof skillet over medium heat. When warm, add egg and pumpkin mixture. Sprinkle cheese over the top. When the eggs start to settle (5 minutes?), put skillet in the oven to finish cooking — 10 to 25 minutes, depending on how done you like this. 🙂
Remove from oven, slice into 6 pieces, and eat!
